Huge congratulations to our Commercial Director, Craig M Bendall, for being promoted from commercial manager within his first 4 months at Checkmate!
Working for several tier 1 contractors, including Mitie and Kier, Craig rapidly built his reputation as a ‘problem solver’, specialising in contracts and dispute issues and resolutions. Hailed as the ‘man with the Midas touch’, he is especially partial to a challenge, turning struggling projects into winning contracts.
Leaving the corporate grind to work for himself in 2016, Craig became a consultant to spend more time with his family, before bringing his expertise to Checkmate at the end of 2020 as our commercial manager.
Having only just embarked on his Checkmate journey, Craig’s biggest success with us so far is being promoted to commercial director within 4 months at the business – good going!
As a dedicated family man, a keen DIY-er and ice hockey player, Craig also collects animals. Already owning several horses, dogs and a cats, he’s got plans in the works to build on the menagerie very soon…!
